Abstract:

Two sample reels of Niedner Rifts Fuel Hoses were tested for resistance to ballistic penetration from hand-held or shoulder fired weapons. These hose samples had been tested for fuel supply testing several years ago. The question to be answered was, has several years storage after exposed to fuel affect the integrity of the hose. Ballistic tests were conducted as one phase of total testing, including pressure and flow resistance.
